Kodak Black was arrested for oxycodone possession and trafficking in Fort Lauderdale. Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kahan Kapri, was pulled over in a traffic stop by Florida Highway Patrol troopers on Friday, July 15th.
According to the police report, officers pulled Kodak’s purple Dodge Durango over on Northwest 31st Avenue near West Cypress Creed Road at 4:30 p.m. They thought Kodak’s windows looked more tinted than the legal limit and his SUV’s registration was expired. When the officers informed Kodak about why they pulled him over, they smelled an intense weed smell and opted to search his car.
This isn’t the first time Kodak Black has been in Broward County Jail. Kodak Black was arrested in November 2019 for knowing making false claims in order to unlawfully acquire a gun. According to Broward County Jail’s official press release, he was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Federico A. Moreno to 46 months in prison, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release.
Kodak Black was also arrested in April 2019 for separate gun and drug charges while trying to enter the U.S. from Canada and was indicted by a grand jury in 2016 after being accused of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
However, he was given a Presidential commutation by former President Donald Trump before he left office. Former President Trump pardoned Lil Wayne before he left office as well. Lifehacker reports that Presidential commutations shorten federal sentences but restrict civil rights like voting while pardons are granted after someone has already served their time allowed the party person to have civil rights like voting and owning a gun.
